Personally, each year has gotten better/been more fun.

Age 3 > Age 2 > Age 1 > Infant

you're hitting the peak years of spending the best time with the kids . . . then they start playing with friends more, then turn into teens who begrudgingly tolerate you, lol.


Nah kansas's kid is gonna be a wook going to phish shows with his dad until the sun burns out


That's secretly my dream. However, mom will NEVER let that happen.

As much as they love the stuff you're into as kids, they eventually get into their own things and that's exactly as it should be. I'd love for my kids to be as into the bands, comics, posters, and movies that I'm into, as much as I am into them, but I'm glad they have their own things they are passionate about.

They are little mini-mes at first, but they quickly become their own people.

My little nugget arrived October 17.

Things people don’t tell you:

They fart a lot.
You will get fudge on.
You will get pissed on (boys). He’s peed on the wall like 4 times. He waits until the diaper is off.
You will get barfed on.
They wake up like 3 times in the middle of the night at first. You will become a zombie. Luckily my little guy only wakes up like at 3:30am and goes back down around 4.

But, I’m excited to get home and he’s my desktop pic at work and I find myself smiling when I look at his picture. My wife goes back to work tomorrow and so she’s super sad today.

This, but you gotta cook. Grocery pickup services help, too.

Walmart pickup has been great for us. Much easier to budget for groceries and eating out less.

And geez...the daycare bills :hanging: :hanging: :hanging:

We had to get on a waitlist last year for daycare...crazy. It’s $330/week so months with 5 weeks...that’s our mortgage :(

Congrats, but I have a hard time believing people didn't tell you these things. I'll chalk this one up to sleep deprivation.

I loved having babies, but I'm so glad to be through that part of my life.

We said screw grocery pickup and went full lazy, and went for grocery delivery. $7 fee and some tip between $10-20. We would order $500-600 worth of groceries, which lasted many weeks. Sometimes we still do it if we have a busy week or something.

This is true and it's so much fun because we think that they have such awesome taste and we've raised mini-mes and we're so awesome but as they branch out, they still seem to hold on to some things that we turned them on to, just in less obvious ways. The best part is when they share new things with you that excite you, or in our case, playfully argue about and criticize.
